I’ve got a couple of emails asking about our curriculum for this year.  I’m sorry its taken me so long.  So here it is:

English Grammar – We are still using School of Tomorrow (PACES)

Reading/Writing – All In One Homeschool – English 7 (http://allinonehomeschool.com/individual-courses-of-study/english-7/)

Spelling – I’m using a weekly schedule I’ll explain at the end of this post.

Math – Saxon 87

History – All In One Homeschool – Ancient History – Year 1 (http://allinonehomeschool.com/individual-courses-of-study/history-year-1/)

Science – Apologia Zoology II Swimming Creatures

Computer – All In One Homeschool – Computer  (http://allinonehomeschool.com/individual-courses-of-study/computer/)

Foreign Language – Hindi

Spelling

I get a list of words from www.k12reader.com.  I usually use the words for the weekly rule, but add my own academic and sight words.  I also add 4 additional words to make 20.  Then we follow this weekly schedule:

Monday – write the words in agenda and twice in notebook

Tuesday – Put words in alphabetical order and look up 10 of the words in the dictionary

Wednesday – Look up the other 10 words and write 3 sentences using as many words as possible.  Pretest

Thursday – Write the words missed on pretest 10 x each and study for test

Friday – Test
